One of the good things that come of a true marriage is,
that there is one face on which changes come without your seeing them;
or rather there is one face which you can still see the same,
through all the shadows which years have gathered upon it.
The problem with marriage is that it ends every night after making love,
and it must be rebuilt every morning before breakfast.
Pity all newlyweds. She cooks something nice for him,
and he brings her flowers, and they kiss and think:
How easy marriage is.
In every marriage more than a week old,
there are grounds for divorce.
The trick is to find, and continue to find, grounds for marriage.
One advantage of marriage is that,
when you fall out of love with him or he falls out of love with you,
it keeps you together until you fall in again.
Success in marriage does not come merely
through finding the right mate,
but through being the right mate.
